Warm weather is finally here! This means we get to have fun styling our favorite summer outfits with the BEST accessories. I’ve compiled a list of my 10 go-to everyday accessories that can interchangeably pair with any outfit you have in your wardrobe.
Check out my accessory essentials below!
Sling bags have become one of the top trends in fashion over the last few years. They’re an easy, arms-free alternative to the traditional handbag, making them the perfect addition to any outfit in the summer. This vegan leather option comes in multiple colors with a fun patterned strap. It’s the perfect bag for running errands, date nights, or any summer adventures you have planned.
I love how effortless a layered necklace is! Not only does it look chic, but it can elevate even the most simple outfit. A chain necklace was thrown on top of a graphic tee. Perfection. A more delicate option, paired with a more comfortable tank, leggings, and a cardigan. So cute. A layered necklace takes the guesswork out of picking the perfect accessory & there are so many fun combinations to choose from!
Again, another simple accessory that can elevate an outfit. Big hoops used to be the go-to trend, but now we are seeing a more simple approach to the hoop earring. Huggies are great because you still get the cute designs of a hoop earring without the worry of getting them caught in your hair on a windy summer day! Making them perfect to wear with your hair up or down.
I LOVE a good pair of sunglasses. They’re perfect for blocking the sun and other people’s negative energy. These chic black glasses give off cool girl vibes and pair well with any color combination in your outfit. You can also find a similar pair of sunglasses here.
Hair clips have risen to the height of fashion trends in the past few years, proving again that everything comes back into style at least once. That thought aside, they are a great alternative to stretchy ponytail holders, which can become tangled in your hair and cause creasing. Claw clips are a comfortable cute alternative to keeping your hair out of your face on a hot summer day.
Even during the dog days of summer, I always have some sort of a long sleeve jacket or sweater with me. It never fails; I’ll go into a restaurant or store and instantly freeze because they have the air conditioning cranked to the heavens. This lightweight button down shacket in a range of colors and is a perfect summer accessory for my girlies that are always cold. See similar versions here.
An easy slip-on shoe is a must-have in the summer. The Sanuk brand is known for their comfortable footwear. Available in tan and black, this shoe will keep your feet comfortable and stylish all summer long. Bonus – they’re made from vegan recycled materials and are machine washable!
I know.. I know.. moisturizer as an accessory? Trust me on this one. One of the best things you can do for your skin in the summer months is keep it hydrated! I love this watermelon pink juice moisturizer from Glow Recipe because it not only smells amazing but it leaves your skin feeling hydrated without being sticky. It also works wonders on all skin types.
Does anyone else change their perfume out with the seasons? I love different scents during different seasons. My favorite scents for summer are something light, tropical, floral, and fruity. Changing perfumes with the seasons also helps link a perfume to the great memories I make. See a few of my favorites above!
10. Lip Gloss
Summer calls for juicy, hydrated lips that don’t leave you feeling sticky. I love a lip gloss/stain that lasts all day and gives my lips a bright pop of color. If you’re looking for a gloss with beautiful pigment and shine, Tarte’s Maracuja Juicy Lip Balm is the best. I never leave home without one! If you want a lip oil that leaves a beautiful stain on your lips all day, you’ll want to check out the new Rare Beauty lip oils.
